Bush sends Cheney to Mideast to promote peace vision

WASHINGTON: US President George W. Bush said on Monday that he was sending Vice President Dick Cheney to the Middle East to push Israel and the Palestinians to keep their promises under the diplomatic "road map" to peace. "His goal is to reassure people that the United States is committed to a vision of peace in the Middle East [and] that we expect the relevant parties to uphold their obligations under the road map," the US president told reporters.

The vice president - who leaves on March 16 for Oman, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Occupied West Bank and Turkey - will also pursue US diplomatic efforts to isolate Iran, which Bush numbered among "the threats facing the Middle East."

Cheney will meet with key leaders including Israeli Premier Ehud Olmert, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

His trip comes amid frenetic US diplomacy to try to hammer out a Middle East peace deal - or at least agreed-upon guidelines for a Palestinian state - before Bush leaves office in January 2009.

"I'm optimistic that we'll be able to achieve a vision that shows the way forward, and I'm optimistic that leaders will step forward and do the hard things necessary, so people don't have to live in deprivation and fear," said Bush.
. . . . .

I checked this several times to make sure it wasn't an "Onion" send-up. The War Chimp is really gone off the deep end—Cheney as PEACE envoy. :roll: :roll: The biggest threat to Middle East peace is the United States in Iraq and an irrational fear of Iran.

I thought it had to be a joke as well. What the hell is going on?

I would venture to say we are going to War with Syria and Iran and Israel is coming along as a interested partner. Or the other way around.
Admiral Fallon a opponent of War with Iran has just resigned or been fired. Take your pick. Hezbolla and Hamas are military arms of Iran and Syria and Israel is already at War with them.USS Cole moved back into the area along with other Naval Ships.
Just connect the dots and think about it.

I'm sure the Middle East is very optimistic about regional peace when the olive branch bearing Cheney initiates his ever skillful diplomacy.

Is is just me or does the sky have a cast that reminds one of many war movies?

I have just seen Darth Cheney promoted for a peace convoy. Pinch me....this can not be real.

:roll: Oh, my yes...gotta follow Bush's road map! You all know how wonderful it's been for the US and the rest of the world.

Bush is probably pissed that the Iranian president paid a recent visit to Iraq, which Bush views as part of his Texas ranch.

I'd bet Cheney will bring his shotgun along! Incidentally, isn't this kind of trip the actual job of the Secretary of State? Don't tell me she's not been tough enough! :twisted:

I was thinking that from the first post...

It would be clever if Cheney suffered a 'problem' and could not/did not return. They would make McSame the VP and roll in enough good months to ensure victory for '100 years McSame'.

Meanwhile, Cheney would be living large somewhere in S America.

Now that would be clever.

I can see Cheney living large somewhere in S America, but the next in line to be Pres is Nancy Pelosi. Maybe that is why she is playing up to the thugs in chief?
